IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
Proper installation, service, and repair are important to the safe reliable operation of
DuraClass’products. Installation and service procedures recommended by DuraClass are
described in this service manual and are effective for performing installation and service
operations. Some of these operations may require the use of tools or blocking devices

important to note that some warnings against the use of specific methods that can cause
damage to the product or render it unsafe are stated in this manual. It is also important to
understand these warnings are not exhaustive. DuraClass could not possibly know,
evaluate, and advise the service trade of all conceivable ways in which service might be
done or of the possible hazardous consequences of each way. Consequently, DuraClass
has not undertaken any such broad evaluations. Accordingly, anyone who uses
installation and service procedures or tools which are not recommended by DuraClass
must first satisfy himself thoroughly that neither his safety nor the product safety will be
jeopardized by the method he selects.
DuraClass, as a manufacturer of the equipment that is covered by this manual, is
providing a product to the user who has acknowledged to have superior knowledge of the
conditions of the use to which the product will be put. DuraClass relies upon the user’s
superior knowledge in specifying any changes or modifications including, but not limited
to, the inclusion or non-inclusion of options that are required by the user and the
DuraClass product, and for the particular application of the user relative to the DuraClass
product.
The information and specifications included in this publication were in effect at the time
of approval for printing. DuraClass reserves the right, however, to discontinue or change
specifications or design at any time without notice and without incurring any obligation
whatsoever.
GENERAL INFORMATION
The DuraClass Sidewinder is a multi-purpose body and hoist unit which can be used for
conventional dump body applications as well as a material spreader. There are several
options available to enhance the operation of the DuraClass Sidewinder, such as different

BASIC DIMENSIONS
The DuraClass Sidewinder is available in four standard lengths: 9’, 10’, 12’, and 14’.
They are used on chassis from 84” to 96” C/A and 108” to 134” C/T respectively. Figure
1 and figure 2 show suggested dimensions for 10’and 14’ bodies. Dimensions may vary
as each installation can be different. The C/A or C/T can also be adjusted as necessary for
extra cab clearance for an oil tank, wing plow cabinet, etc.

CYLINDER SUPPORT FRAME AND TIE DOWNS
Place cylinder support frame back of cab as shown in Figure 3 so it fits squarely on the
chassis and the cylinder will be oriented vertically when installed. It may be necessary to
drill holes in base of support frame to clear rivet heads. Clamp support frame to chassis
rail temporarily. Tack weld frame tie downs to support frame. Drill four 41/64” (16 mm)
holes in chassis rail using holes in tie downs as a template. Bolt tie downs to chassis rail.
Weld tie downs to support frame on three sides as shown. Note: DO NOT weld the
support frame to the chassis rail. Remove clamps.

BODY GUIDES
Position body guides to clear body crossmembers. Drill four 41/64” holes in chassis rail,
using holes in body guide as template. Bolt body guides in place.

REAR HINGE ASSEMBLY
WELD NOTE
ALL STRUCTURAL WELDING DONE IN THE INSTALLATION OF THE
HOIST AND BODY SHOULD BE PERFORMED USING ONLY THE
FOLLOWING RECOMMENDED WELD ELECTRODE AND WIRE.
ELECTRODE – E-7018 (THIS IS A LOW HYDROGEN ROD, AND
MANUFACTURER’S RECOMMENDATIONS MUST BE FOLLOWED.)
WIRE – E-70S-3 (WIRE MANUFACTURER’S RECOMMENDATIONS MUST
BE FOLLOWED.)
Place the rear hinge on the truck frame. Make sure the rear hinge is correctly located and
square with the truck frame and the telescopic cylinder mount. Cut the chassis as shown
in Fig. 6. Center rear hinge and securely weld the rear hinge to the truck frame. If a pintle
plate is not installed, box the end of the truck frame with ¼” thick plate (not supplied).

HYDRAULIC SCHEMATIC
The DuraClass Sidewinder is designed to tie into a central hydraulic system. Hydraulic
components supplied include hoses, fittings, and tubes for the side raise cylinders as well
as the conveyor and spinner motors. Figure 7 shows a possible hydraulic schematic for
the Sidewinder unit. Relief valve settings should be at 2500 PSI for the hoist, side raise
cylinders, and rate control functions. A “down” side relief of 500 PSI is suggested for the
side raise cylinders.
Consult your central hydraulic system manufacturer for actual schematic and plumbing of
remaining portions of the hydraulic system. Cab controls are not provided with the
Sidewinder and will need to be sourced with the remaining hydraulic system components.

MOUNTING FRONT CHUTE AND SPINNER
The spinner assembly and front chute are mounted on the left hand side of the chassis
under the conveyor outlet on the body. Material from the body travels down the
adjustable chute and onto the spinner assembly. The front chute is bolted to the chassis
frame using four 1/2"-13NC x 2” grade five fasteners with lock nuts. Use the holes in
chute mounting plate to drill holes. Locate and weld the front chute support to the chute
mounting plate. It should be centered both vertically and horizontally. The chute can now
slide on the support tube and be retailed with the hairpin cotter attached to the upper part
of the chute (not shown in figure 8).
Figure 8 Front Chute Support
The spinner support is bolted to the chassis frame using four 1/2"-13NC x 2” grade five
fasteners with lock nuts as shown in figure 9. Use the holes in spinner support mounting
plate to drill holes.

The spinner assembly can then be attached to the spinner support using four 3/8”-16NC x
1” grade five fasteners and lock nuts. Vertical adjustment is available with an extra set of
holes in the spinner assembly and on the spinner support assembly. Two more of the
3/8”-16NC x 1” grade five fasteners and lock nuts are used to attach the spinner guard to
the spinner assembly. The spinner disc must have an upper hub assembly and lower plate
attached with six 5/16”-18NC grade five fasteners with luck nuts to allow mounting on
the spinner assembly. Two 3/8”-16NC x 2” grade five fasteners and lock nuts are used to
attach the spinner disc assembly to the spinner assembly.

OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT – AS ORDERED
BODY RAISED INDICATOR KIT
Position body raised switch on the left side of the front of the hoist frame or the chassis
frame. If attached to the hoist frame, the bracket may be welded or bolted in place. If
mounted to the chassis frame, use the bracket as a template and drill two holes for 3/8”
bolts. See Figures 11 and 12.
Adjust the activating screw so that switch button is depressed about 3/16” and test for
proper operation.

SPINNER BAFFLE KIT
Locate spinner baffles around spinner guard making sure the baffle with the offset tab is
located at the front. Bolt baffle brackets to baffles and weld brackets to spinner guard.
Attach links to baffles and adjustment brackets. Weld adjustment brackets to spinner
guard so baffles hang straight down when link is in its lowest position in the adjustment
bracket. See figure 14.
